Looks good. Do they fit without a lift as they are a taller tire? Any effect on transmission shift points. I prefer the tall and narrow with a strong sidewall. About 6 mo. ago put 255/75x17 GY...

To buy or not to buy the JK 6 spd

I have a 2011 JK auto. No problems at all - has been very reliable. Only problem is I hate the auto. Bought my first car in 1967 - a stick shift Pontiac Firebird, then a series of Chevy...

Had new Goodyear Silent Armor tires installed

Had the stock SRA's on my 2011 JK replaced with 255/75x17 Wrangler Silent Armors. A world of difference. Next will replace the stock shocks with Monroe monotube gas ones.

Smile Silent Armors installed; about a 10x stronger sidewall than stock STE's

Finally had the Goodyear SilentArmors mounted today. Size was stock - 255/75x17. With both the original SRA's and Silent Armors unmounted I was able to compare the sidewalls - I'm not exaggerating...

Went with Silent Armors

Just ordered a set of Silent Armor 255/75x17 at the local Discount Tire. Did not want to go down in size to 265/70x17 or do spaces/lifts for a larger size. Like the high/narrow profile of the stock...

In the end, as the reality of retirement comes closer (10 more paychecks), one becomes much more conservative in regard to money management and expenses. No new 2014 Jeep. Donated by 5 spd...

2010/2011 to 2012/2013 - what has changed?

I noticed these posts all are related to the 2012/13 JK's, and not the 2010/11 models. What changed with the 6 spd between 2011 and 2012? I know, different engine, but that should not changed the...
